audacious Those are the only two conclusions you can arrive at if you take claims made by Delhi Police at face value Just days after the RK Nagar by-election was rescinded by the Election Commission after revelations that the Sasikala camp planned to distribute Rs 89 crore as bribe to the voters of the constituency to elect Dinakaran the AIADMK strongman is now accused of attempting to bribe the EC with Rs 50 to 60 crore to get the two leaves symbol This is after Delhi Police arrested Sukesh Chandrasekhar who has in the past too been accused of conning people TTV Dinakaran Facebook Delhi Police sources claim that Dinakaran and Chandrasekhar knew each other for the past four years They say they got the lead that some money transfer was taking place through hawala channels via Kochi The police claims they are in possession of audio conversations between Dinakaran and Chandrasekhar and a lawyer who was acting as a go-between Dinakaran however has denied knowing Chandrasekhar and has put up a brave face saying he will respond to the summons by Delhi Police The police are basing their case on the Rs 13 crore reportedly recovered from Chandrasekhar during the raid in his room at a south Delhi hotel on Saturday and the leads secured during his interrogation There are many questions that arise Given that Dinakaran has been a political animal for so longif he indeed had to use someone to bribe EC officials wouldn’t he have depended on his trustworthy political managers who know their way through the Lutyens Delhi maze Why would Dhinakaran bank on a 27-year-old person who has the reputation of a conman to get a political work done And there is still no word on whether any EC bigwig was indeed approached with the offer Interestingly on Sunday afternoon this message was sent to some senior journalists in Delhi: "Please be in touch with Delhi police Some major developments in Dinakaran-Sasikala case” The idea behind giving this heads up was clearly to use the media to sully Dinakaran’s FERA-tarnished reputation Sources say top officers of the Crime Branch of Delhi Police have been drafted in the high-profile case Why these question marks are being raised is because political events are unfolding in tandem in Chennai On Friday which was Tamil New Year day a dozen senior leaders of the party including some ministers asked Dinakaran to step aside as deputy general secretary They reportedly told him that the Income Tax raid on Health minister C Vijayabaskar was an indication of things to come Three ministers have also been booked for obstructing the I-T sleuths from doing their job They read the writing on the wall that anyone in the Sasikala camp was a certain target for central agencies And those with skeletons in their cupboard do not want to risk a sleuth’s knock At the same time chief minister Edappadi Palaniswami has been mounting pressure on Dinakaran to green-light his proposal to sack Vijayabaskar Dinakaran sees the Health minister as his loyalist who played a crucial role in the RK Nagar election campaign Removing him Dinakaran realises will only embolden his detractors to ask for more Giving credence to the growing rift between Dinakaran and Palaniswami the chief minister did not change any of his official engagements on Monday after hearing of the party supremo’s name figuring in the FIR Dinakaran is also aware of moves being made ostensibly with Delhi’s blessings to get Palaniswami and Panneerselvam to do business together The Dinakaran camp sees the I-T raid and the Delhi police case as steps in that direction to push him against the wall and cut off his supply of political oxygen This isbecause despite attempts to set the cat among the pigeons Sasikala still commands the loyalty of about 25 lawmakers That number will prevent the formation of a majority EPS+OPS government This is preventing a merger of the two AIADMK factions keeping the Mannargudi family out So is the Delhi Police case an attempt to tighten the screws to get some of the 25 Sasikala loyalists to switch sides Team Dinakaran is certain this is why Plan B has been put into action While no one really knows if Dinakaran indeed tried to bribe his way to get the symbol in order to control the AIADMK he knows every move in the AIADMK is being watched very closely His next move including whether to cede Vijayabaskar to buy peace will be decided after he consults his aunt in Bengaluru prison this week On the other hand Dinakaran’s detractors deduce that the bribery attempt is the reason the Sasikala camp wanted eight weeks time in the symbol case before the EC The assumption is that Dinakaran was bargaining for time to be able to carry out the plan to bribe the EC officials Interestingly the Panneerselvam faction of the AIADMK is no longer focused on the symbol It wants the EC to first decide on the legality of Sasikala’s election as general secretary Should the EC strike it down even Dinakaran’s appointment as deputy general secretary will become null and void This week could mark the endgame in the AIADMK crisis The Delhi Police at Dinakaran’s door charging him under the Prevention of Corruption Act is not the optics the ruling party MLAs would like to see They are only interested in ensuring the government does not fall so that they do not have to face afresh election It is clear the sleuths do not want to give Dinakaran much space to manoeuvre The BJP wouldn’t admit it openly but it is clear that it wants the two factions minus the Sasikala clan to merge so that it has the AIADMK votes in its pocket before the Presidential election An eternally grateful Panneerselvam will be easy to control for the BJP which has been trying to get a foothold in Tamil Nadu for quite some time now Written by Anuradha

something every woman has heard being randomly accosted on the road and yes that has now translated online to not just Facebook and other social networking sites but also the professional LinkedIn While I’m usually careful about avoiding “friendship requests” from people I don’t know on Facebook I’m not that reticent on LinkedIn since it’s a site where professionals pursue career goals But I’ve had to un-connect after receiving “friendship requests” in my mailbox marked to “My dear…” So when a new matrimonial app decides to pitch itself as the perfect playing ground for dating with a purpose using the professional networking site as its database it doesn’t necessarily mean that it would weed out the Romeos Promatch playing cupid to ambitious careerists claims to be a notch above the typical dating apps which are used for “flirting” and “casual relationships” among other things Promatch on the other hand since it has LinkedIn verified profiles effectively points you towards mates who are (hopefully) “focused towards a serious relationship” and get this—you can search in same industry match your incomes and city First off hookups happen everywhere whether it’s at work or elsewhere It’s the same people after all whether you meet at a bar through common friends or at work with or without an app Potential partners can’t grow a sincerity gene just because you happen to be a ‘pro’ match But what’s commendable is the clear-headed approach it takes to matrimony something Indians are famous for While it’s fine to kiss all the frogs you like make your “mistakes” before you find your Prince Charming or the woman of your dreams when it comes to marriage there’s a very decided checklist which puts the earning capacity of a spouse right on top And conventionally parents have looked for a doctor for their doctor son or daughter and other similar matches And while such an app may sound like fun it’s not really since it’s similar to the “bio-data” that gets sent around to relatives and all those who reach out listing educational qualifications even parents’ and relatives’ career progression if someone is well-placed in a government job etc It’s all laid out bare bones without any pretensions In this generation where we act all this doesn’t matter and we’re one better than our parents such an app calls out our innate…well “Indian-ness” Will the guy understand my hours Can he support me if I take a break after a baby Will the woman be able to equally pitch in for my dream home EMIs Well let’s face it we’re like that only Or a lot of us still are Matching incomes is not a bad thing ideally I remember when a friend’s marriage was breaking up one of the things was that rankled was their approach to money While she was middle-class in her thinking putting off the lights and fans whenever she left a room or haggled with auto-wallahs the guy was beyond such cares On a daily basis such things can blow up into something huge So yes coming from a similar income bracket isn’t such a bad idea Same industry What about all the gossip that follows if you break up And what about all your dark secrets that can be laid bare through common contacts In other words just like when you apply for a job it’s easy to do a background check So it’s time to hold back on the drinks at office parties…you don’t want that making it to your profile But while a friend I checked with said she didn’t mind giving it a try some others question the concept of getting matched with a “pro” “I would much rather go with the flow” one guy said adding “What my partner does is not really the question It’s the person that’s important” Another in his early twenties who loves video games was thrilled with the idea of maybe finding someone from the gaming industry so they could literally play together However he added sagely “I think it’s for people who care about the ‘status’ of their spouse…who feel the need to show off perhaps” Well how about doing it the old-fashioned way Whether you swipe right or left on Tinder if you find someone hot (or not) or check out their incomes don’t lose focus on the real thing—finding a partner who understands you not just your cranky boss and working hours though that can be a good start So go ahead log on Finding the right someone never sounded as easy…or tough Love will remain tricky and messy wherever you chance upon it The

hit back at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for attacking demonetisation and GST saying people were "solidly standing" with the Narendra Modi government on the decision to junk high currency notes and GST is the best thing to have happened in tax administration in seven decades BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao also took a personal dig at the Congress vice-president over his remarks on GST saying that when it "becomes a joke when he tries to become an intellectual" Representational image AFP He said the people had given the Congress "a resounding slap" when they tried to make demonetisation a poll plank in the Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand assembly polls and if they seek to do it again then people will give them a "befitting reply" Accusing the Congress of not acting against black money during all its time in power he said it was instead opposing Modi’s steps against black money and tax evasion Terming the government’s steps in the "national interest" he said people were "solidly standing" with Modi’s "cleaning up exercise" and accused the Congress of opposing any attack on assets abroad or money laundering since their leaders were involved in it He also mocked the Congress and other opposition parties’s decision to mark 8 November the demonetisation decision was announced by the government last year as a "Black Day" "The more Congress tries to really cry about demonetisation it will expose itself among the people and we are happy with this brazen shameless public support for black money by the Congress" he said On GST Rao said Congress supported it in parliament and also claimed it was an initiative worked upon during the UPA government while their state governments supported every decision regarding GST be it in terms of rates and commodities covered "It is height of hypocrisy for the Congress to claim that Congress party is not party to GST It only shows their lack of willingness to accept reality The Congress cannot run away from it We will hold them accountable" he said adding that the BJP believes that GST is the "best thing that has happened to this country in seven decades" Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on

as a positive step towards the evolution of a "scientific and rational" social order in India Those who have not seen him from close would tend to believe that Gurmeet Ram Rahim is a maverick in the garb of a spiritual leader who exploits people’s gullibility But that will definitely be a wrong descriptionFile image of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh CNN-News18 He is certainly an extraordinary man who thrives on people’s fear of the known as unknown In the process he has spawned a huge economy around his ashram and activities that involve lakhs of people wholeheartedly devoted to him In essence he fills the gap where the state has practically abdicated its responsibility During my visit to his opulent ashram at Sirsa on a winter evening two years back I found him the most amazing person I have ever met He was quite candid in his conversation talking about how he did stunts in his movie himself and about his penchant for composing and singing rap songs himself "Why should I not do it if any actor could do it" he asked me quite nonchalantly When asked about criminal charges against him including of rape he would keep mum but such a query used to make his supporters within the ashram angry Such questions are better not posed before Gurmeet Ram Rahim who carefully cultivated his image as that of a saviour for the teeming oppressed and the poor living in Haryana and Punjab But that’s just one side of his story Few know that Gurmeet Ram Rahim is immensely popular among doctors A score of the country’s top ophthalmologists including those belonging to the prestigious RP Centre of the AIIMS are his disciples They experience "divine bliss" in the presence of Gurmeet Ram Rahim who is known as "pitaji" among his devotees Take the case of Aditya who used to work as a liaison man for the Baba He is known to be a very good ophthalmologist having graduated from the AIIMS Aditya could speak for hours on end in praise of the Baba and would not hesitate to point out that though his past was unsavoury he corrected himself after associating with "Pitaji" There are several others like Aditya who can swear their lives in the name of Gurmeet Ram Rahim And the reasons for Baba’s burgeoning following are not far to seek He presides over a veritable empire in Sirsa and other places in Haryana and Punjab where he runs charitable hospitals With the collapse of the health system all across the country his disciples in millions find it quite reassuring to avail best medical facilities in Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s ashrams His myth not only perpetuates but gets multiplied in exponential proportion But what really legitimises his ways is the endorsement from politics Since the Dera Sacha Sauda could boast of millions of followers who are ready to do anything at the Baba’s bidding politicians flock to his ashram before elections Just before Haryana assembly elections there were reports of BJP president Amit Shah approaching Gurmeet Ram Rahim to secure support for the party And the Baba did not disappoint him as he openly endorsed the BJP The BJP’s significant gains in co-opting the marginalised sections of society in Haryana were attributed to the Dera Sacha Sauda’s open endorsement of the BJP There is little doubt that Gurmeet Ram Rahim has always been much sought after man before every election Political leaders either secretly or openly make deals with him in order to get votes In the religious domain Gurmeet Ram Rahim is without doubt the worst manifestation of Indian spirituality He wears outrageous outfits and comes across as a not-so-pleasing character to the sophisticated urban elites Yet his sermons and his uncouth rendition of raps attract devotees The apparent reason is that he appeals to an audience particularly social underdogs who are left out of upper-caste dominated Hinduism and Jat-dominated Sikhism That is the precise reason that though his spiritualism does not conform to the elites’ perception of it his wayward ways find resonance among the poor and unwashed masses of Haryana and Punjab villages It would therefore be nave — even wrong — to see Gurmeet Ram Rahim in black and white His appeal emergence and subsequent conviction fall into a grey area which needs an intense scrutiny However the best part of the court’s decision on Friday is that it will give a fillip to a progressive understanding of the society and instill a "scientific temper" This will reaffirm people’s faith in saying "even gods have feet of clay” Godmen like Gurmeet Ram Rahim are not exceptions
